HC Deb 01 December 1980 vol 995 c10W
4. Mr. McNamara

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what proposals he has for placing before the European Economic Commission to strengthen the antidumping regulations.

17. Mr. Stanbrook

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he is satisfied with the speed with which antidumping complaints are dealt with by the Commission of the EEC.

Mr. Nott

The Community anti-dumping regulations were revised at the beginning of this year following the multilateral trade negotiations under the GATT. My concern is to ensure that these regulations work speedily and effectively. In my view, the Commission's antidumping resources are overstretched and I have been strongly supporting the Commission in its desire to allocate more staff for this area of work.
